Yeah, you got me there but, it seems to me that the size limit is unnecessarily low.
I understand you don't want people's avatars to take up too much bandwidth and slow down the site but, the size limits seem way too low for any good
avatars. The T&Cs allow animated avatars but, anyone who follows the rules to the letter won't be able to find one small enough to use. Even some of
the non animated images are too big, like this one I used during the Christmas season.
The allowable sizes for background images are slightly larger even though many members don't even use one. Maybe the size limitation should be a
combination of the avatar and background limits to give us more flexibility if we only want to use one or the other.
My current avatar and the Christmas one were well within the size limits for background images but, I prefer the smaller avatar pic with my colored
background to a stretched out background image.
I haven't seen any avatars in my time here that slowed down my computer noticeably but, I can't even look at this site when not logged in because all
the ads make the pages load so slow.
